This is a perfect whisky for a cold night. The nose is complex with ripe fruit (purple and red), brown sugar, vanilla, brine, and a hint of pepper. This continues into the palate. A small amount of water opens it up more (remember it is only 40%, so only a few drops!), revealing more of both its sherried nature and the vanilla, but becoming more creamy and satisfying. Wonderful dram! Now I can face the frigid weather outside!
